Reasons to love Reading

It’s no secret that reading has changed my life. I have met so many great people because of a shared interest in books. The book community is pretty great. As long as everyone keeps in mind that not every book will be liked by everyone.

So let’s jump right in to the nitty gritty, the meat and potatoes of this post. Here are some reasons to love reading,

Reasons to love reading

It transports you to different place. If you are ever in a bad mood, or just need to “get away”, open a book. Whether you want to be at Hogwarts, Middle Earth, or chillin with the Darkling, it’s all possible.

It helps you to use your imagination more. In the words of Geston, “how can you read this? There’s no pictures?”. Bells response “some people use their imagination”.

You get to meet lots of interesting people. Like I said above. The book community can be pretty great. I have met so many really nice people within it. Including Elle Beaumont. She writes novellas, I’m in love with them. You can check out her website here.

To read one of my book reviews of Brotherhood of the Sea by Elle Beaumont check out this link.

It opens you up to new words and ideas. There are SO many words out there that I didn’t know were actual words. Reading can definitely expand your vocabulary.

What are some reasons you love reading? Let me know down in the comments below.

Till next time,

  1. So much truth here! Reading is definitely my favorite escape, and I’ve broadened my horizons so much through the pages of books! Recently I’ve been reading a lot by authors from different cultures and it is SO interesting to view things from a different cultural perspective

    1. I completely agree Catey! I love when books have main characters who may live in the western culture but also have non western beliefs, traditions and views. I find it really interesting.

  2. One of the best quotes to sum up why I love reading: “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies . . . The man who never reads lives only one.” – George R.R. Martin

    It always transported me to a magical and informative place and was a constant sign of comfort. Heck I loved it so much I became an English and Comparative Literature major!

  3. I have read prolifically since I was very small and I’m not sure what I would have done without it in my life I do know I would be a tenth of the person I am now with only a minute amount of information about the world – school really teaches you nothing – everyone needs to read

    1. I agree, I didn’t learn a lot from grade school and pretty much nothing from high school. Reading has really expanded my world and for it I’m extremely grateful 🙂
